NALANDA is a well-established Resource Centre for Educational Innovation, with its primary office in Lucknow, and field offices in Gaya and Ranchi. Its principal goal is to enable the children from vulnerable sections, particularly rural areas, avail quality basic education. It has been promoted to work towards a system of basic education, which makes the child the centre of any educational venture. It is focused towards building on and extending educational ideas to support and reach institutions denied quality support within Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand.

For the past twenty years, Nalanda has worked intensively as a resource centre to provide academic and project support to various government and non-government agencies working on elementary education. Nalanda has built up successful partnerships with the government primary education system, UNICEF and other agencies working on education. Some of the flagship programs of Nalanda are the Madarsas Program – an intervention to strengthen elementary education in Madarsas, Tribal children education program, Girl children education program and programs for NGOs to strengthen their capacity to learn quality education based initiatives.

Presently we have no openings for any location.
